Who is it for? LOreal Magic Retouch Instant Root Concealer It is an instant root concealer spray to be used for emergencies when you don’t have enough time to colour you hair. It provides only temporary coverage and lasts only till you wash your hair. The concealer spray is available in two colours in India- dark brown and black.

My experience with L’Oreal Paris Magic Retouch Instant Root Concealer


The hair root concealer comes in a small cylindrical turquoise color pressurized can that you can easily carry with you in your handbag. It has a long spray nozzle on top, which is quite easy to use.

Application instructions:

This product is supposed to be applied on dry hair. On the back it says shake well before use. Keep the product upright. Also you need to keep it at least 10 cm away and then spray. These instructions can be a little tricky to follow and you do tend to colour your scalp as well if you spray from too close. Give it a few more tries and you will get the hang of it eventually. Though it washes off easily from hands, you should wear gloves to protect your hands during application. You also need to give the colour a minutes or so to dry before you touch it.

Another precaution that you need to take before spraying this is to cover your face with a towel or a piece of cloth so that it doesn’t stain your forehead. Do not over spray, you need only a small amount of this product.

Staying power:

It can easily stay for two days or till you wash your hair next.

Overall performance

Though this product can not take the place of monthly root-touch ups at the salon, it is definitely an easy quick fix if you have a function to attend and you’ve spotted some ghastly greys in your hair. The hair feels a little sticky after the application, as if you have put some hair spray. I would not recommend it for regular usage. I feel prolonged usage will dry out your hair. So, it is important to treat your hair with some nourishing conditioner after you wash away this product. But it is great product for emergencies and looks very natural. The size of the container is very convenient to carry along with you on a holiday. I used the dark brown shade for my hair and it blended very well with my hair colour.

  1. Easy to use
  2. Instant results
  3. Does not smudge your clothes
  4. Easy to wash off
  1. Contains chemicals
  2. Makes hair a little dry
  3. High price
Would I repurchase or recommend?

I would definitely recommend this product. This is a great product for emergency use. So, go on, part your hair and spray away at your roots.  At Rs 600 for 75 ml, the price is a little on the higher side, but it is available at a discounted rate online.

Rating: 4/5
